In the history of League of Legends in general and the LCK in particular, perhaps, to name a player worthy of the GOAT (Greatest Of All Times) title, surely everyone will immediately think of the name Faker. Not only is T1’s own monument, but Faker is also a legend of League of Legends in general and Esports in particular. Even, as the CEO of T1 himself once admitted, Faker’s name has gone beyond an Esports sport to become a world-class celeb.
Faker – GOAT of League of Legends and LCK in particular and of Esports in general
Recently, Inven Global page has an article listing the achievements that Faker has achieved in the LCK alone in more than 10 years of fighting in the professional League of Legends arena. And the parameters can make even Faker fans feel surprised because it is unbelievable that a player can achieve so many achievements, many of which are records that perhaps. , it will take a long time for someone to break it.
First, Faker absolutely dominated in the number of matches played in the LCK with 696 games and is also the player with the most number of games won – 461. Need to know, Faker’s “contemporary” friend Deft is also the same. age, same time starting professional also only 577 matches and 346 wins. Moreover, Deft can no longer keep up with Faker’s achievements when his DRX is a team with fluctuating performance, Deft himself has also planned to retire possibly at the end of this 2022 season.

In addition, Faker and Deft are also the two leading players in terms of kills with 2464 and 1978 respectively. Besides, Faker also proves that he is always “taken care of” by opponents when he is the master. The most number of lays down in the LCK with 1418 times and followed by GorillA – former ROX Tigers Support with 1258 times having to “go to the top”.
But there is one metric where Faker is unmatched and even, most likely, no one will be able to catch him in the LCK era anymore: the number of LCK championships and the number of appearances in the finals of the high-level tournament. highest level in the Korean LoL village. Specifically, Faker has had 9 LCK championship trophies in his career and notably, he won these 9 championships in 11 times attending the finals of 1 LCK period (also the most number of times to attend the finals compared to the number of finals). between players who have been and are currently playing in the current LCK). Only the win rate in the LCK finals, Faker has reached more than 81%.

However, that does not mean that Faker has no opponents. First, counting the number of championships in the LCK alone, Faker is losing to his old teacher kkOma. The former T1 coach has achieved 11 LCK championships during his illustrious coaching career and of course, 9 of them were achieved while leading his beloved student Faker. And the remaining 2 championships are in the color of DWG KIA.

Next, in terms of win rate, Faker is also losing to his very close brother and former teammate Bengi. Bengi had 124 wins in 172 matches and achieved a win rate of 72.1%, much higher than Faker’s 66.2%. However, because Bengi has a shorter playing time than Faker (the former “Forest God” of SKT T1 only played for about 4 years), this comparison is also somewhat lame.
Faker is also inferior to Bengi in win rate, but SKT T1’s once “God of the Forest” only fought for about 4 years compared to 10 years of juniors.
It can be seen that, during his illustrious career, Faker has won many titles, achieved countless records that would be the dream of any professional League of Legends player. But at the moment, “Demon King” is still fighting with his juniors for future heights and it is certain that Faker will deepen his record even further, gaining more achievements. more and embellished his already great career.
